Thorough oral examinations are vital to providing the foundation for effective preventative dental care as well as to the detection of existing conditions. We recommend scheduling oral exams twice a year to check up on your overall dental health and identify any issues requiring further treatment.
Oral Cancer Screening
Dr. Horak performs oral cancer screenings during every oral examination and dental cleaning. Early detection of pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions improves the likelihood of successful oral cancer prevention and treatment.
Family Dental Care
We provide comprehensive dental care for the whole family. Patients of all ages are welcome at our practice. Dr. Horak and his team are exceptional when working with young children and help educate kids early about the importance of good dental health and oral hygiene.
Comprehensive dental cleanings are required to remove stubborn tartar from the teeth. If allowed to persist, tartar build up, along with plaque and biofilm, can harbor dangerous bacteria that may cause gum disease (gingivitis) and/or infections.
Fluoride treatments have proved to strengthen teeth and reduce the formation of cavities in children. After every dental cleaning, Dr. Horak applies an effective fluoride treatment to protect teeth from future decay.
Sealants are thin layers of bonded plastic coating that are applied to protect teeth against decay. An effective component in children’s preventive dentistry, sealants are placed to fill deep teeth grooves to reduce the occurrence of cavities.
We work hard to ensure that our office, treatment areas, equipment, and water supply are impeccably clean and safe from the spread of infection. We adhere to rigorous standards of personal hygiene and closely follow mandated requirements for contamination prevention.
Athletic Mouth Guards
It is important to protect teeth from traumatic injury during contact sports. Broken, cracked, and chipped teeth are best prevented by consistent use of an athletic mouth guard. The mouth guards we offer are custom-fitted to the patient’s teeth, which provides added protection, comfort, security, and functionality.
Tooth reshaping techniques can smooth rough, sharp, or uneven tooth edges to provide added strength, prevent damage, and improve aesthetics.
When the dental pulp of a badly damaged tooth becomes inflamed or infected, root canal therapy is often required to restore health and comfort. The affected tooth is thoroughly cleaned out, sterilized, sealed, and finally restored with the placement of a dental crown.
